Eyelash and Makeup Services Santa Monica, CA

If you are interested in lash extensions, you may want to learn more about the process. If you weren’t born with beautiful, full, lush lashes, or if you have never really gotten the hang of “falsies,” then lash extensions may be a smart option. Lash extension services offered by trained professionals provide an easy solution for beautiful lashes. What’s even better is that they last. Thanks to the amazing results and countless satisfied clients, lash extensions are more popular than ever before.

Lash extensions can be applied in one sitting and last for several weeks or longer. If your goal is to make your eyes look bigger, quality eyelash extensions can be just what is needed. Rather than having to learn cat eyeliner tricks or spending hours perfecting the smoky eye, you can call and schedule an appointment … and walk out with a fresh new look. Even better, unlike other products, the eyelash extensions provided don’t feel heavy like most falsies and they don’t look clumpy, which is a problem with multiple coats of mascara.

When going in for an appointment, make sure to avoid applying any eye makeup. This means no mascara, eyeliner, or eye shadow. Also, don’t put on any oil-based eye makeup, as this is going to prevent extensions from adhering properly. Once the lashes are in place, it is recommended that you plan your activities carefully. Contrary to popular belief that you have to avoid getting the extensions wet for 24 to 48 hours, you are free to wet the lash the moment you walk out of the salon. With the new breakthrough in the lash industry, lash extension adhesive now cures within 1-3 seconds, and moisture or water droplets help accelerate the curing process of the adhesive.

However, eyelash extensions aren’t the only option offered. Keep reading to learn more about the other services offered here.

Permanent Eyeliner Tattoo

Is permanent eyeliner looking like a smart option? If so, an established company with expert employees can help. If you are tired of having to get up each day and apply your eyeliner and other makeup, this may be an ideal solution. Tattoo eyeliner is a solution that can free up the morning, giving you the time to enjoy other things or simply spend a few more minutes enjoying your morning coffee.

One of the first things to understand about permanent eyeliner is that it isn’t actually permanent. This is an industry term, and the more accurate description is semi-permanent. It is considered permanent because the pigment is going to remain in your skin, but the life of the color is limited, and the visibility will fade eventually.

We also refer to our permanent makeup options as tattooed makeup because the process that is used is similar to a regular tattoo. Needles are used for depositing the ink on your skin. However, the difference is that the pigment is only deposited in the first layers of your skin. Also, our cosmetic inks have much less metal base in them, which means they don’t have the same level of permanency.

Eyebrow Microblading

Have you tried all the different pencils, powders, pigments, gels, and stencils you can find at the makeup counter? Are your brows still sparse? If so, eyebrow microblading is a smart solution. This provides you with a permanent solution for thin brows. In fact, we guarantee our microblading services will change your “brow life.”

Over the years, the use of microblading has grown significantly. Now, this once little-known service has grown in popularity and is something people of all ages use. There’s a good reason for this, as it’s a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for skimpy brows. What’s even better, this process isn’t quite as scary as it may seem at first.

Unlike a traditional tattoo, microblading is a type of artistry that uses tattoo methods. In this process, though, the pigment is implanted under the skin using a hand-held tool rather than a machine. Our technicians will draw hair-like strokes using this tool to mimic your natural brow hairs. While this isn’t going to be as deep as a traditional tattoo, it’s still considered a tattoo because the pigment is implanted under your skin.

Due to the popularity of microblading, there are several techniques offered today in our office. One of these is micro feathering. This is when our professional technicians use a lighter touch. The goal here is to add very little to the existing shape of the brows. Other options include microshading or ombre, which helps to mimic the look of traditional brow makeup using a more filled-in look rather than hair-like strokes.

Before your microblading appointment, there are a few things to know. For example, make sure you don’t take anything that may thin your blood. If you are a heavy drinker, take aspirin, or use retinol, stop approximately one week before going through this treatment process. Retinol is designed to make your skin thinner, which can then cause you to bleed more and may push the pigment out of your skin, causing the effects to look subpar. It’s also best to avoid aspirin and blood thinners, along with anything that is caffeinated or contains alcohol while you are healing.

Also, remember, pain is relative. There are some clients who are going to be more sensitive to pain than others. Overall, microblading feels like small scratches. While there will be some discomfort, it isn’t unbearable. If you have low pain tolerance, it’s smart to apply some numbing cream approximately an hour before your appointment.
